Eric was MIA for most of the episode, but about twenty minutes before the end we learned that he was chillaxing on the top of a mountain, luxuriating in his new access to the sun by curling up with a good book. Completely naked. Because why not? He hadn't felt the sun on his skin in over a thousand years. No reason to let a little modesty get in the way of enjoying the day to its fullest.
Unfortunately for Eric, the fun didn't last — Warlow was killed, and with his passing the magical powers from his blood evaporated, leaving True Blood's hunkiest vamp completely exposed. Completely. He began to burn, and as he jumped up in shock he gave viewers a full length view of his, um, full length. And lo, fangirls around the world fainted.
It should come as no surprise that in today's era of screen capture technology and easy internet access, someone has already freeze-framed the moment and put it on Tumblr for all the world to enjoy. Good way to start a Monday!
We've got a safe-for-work version of the image here. If you'd like to see the uncensored version, you can check it out at beastsofman, but be warned — it is very, very NSFW.
